I've just acquired a nice Nikkormat FT2 - nice except that the light-seals are almost non-existent.
Does anyone have any up-to-date sources of kits/materials/instructions? I've seen some kits on ebay from the US, but postage to the UK is quite high. I especially need to look at the hinge-seal, which on my example looks like it's been removed. What thickness of what type of foam is needed there?
Not much help but in the past I've bought light seal materials from John Goodman in the US charging very little postage. Unfortunately he doesn't seem to sell it now but he has some good instructions on how to fit them here kyphoto
As somebody has suggested, a hobby shop or art supplies dealer should stock some kind of appropriate self adhesive foam.
The velvets from old 35mm film cassettes make super light seal material. Peel off carefully and glue on with rubbery contact adhesive. This velvet is good also for replacing the velvets inside old metal lens caps
